This concise compendium of current knowledge in psychiatry--highly acclaimed and widely used in its earlier editions--has now been brought fully up to date. Goodwin and Guze have included a new chapter on psychiatric examination and a wealth of recent information from clinical, epidemiological, and neurochemical studies relevant to psychiatric disorders. They have also incorporated DSM-III-R criteria into this edition. The authors continue to demonstrate the usefulness of diagnosis based on specifically defined criteria in planning treatment and predicting outcome of illness. Statements are well documented with reference to the psychiatric literature, and the bibliography at the end of each chapter is extensive.
